I am a social science researcher looking for a consultant with database management skills (e.g. SQL Server, Access) to assist me in preparing a data set for analysis.
The specific goals and activities are as follows:
1) Compile a database from public records maintained by the North Carolina Department of Corrections at this link <[url removed, login to view]>
(Refer to the first file link for a chart of the database structure)
2) Provide the consolidated database to me in a format that will allow me to run queries of the data via Microsoft Access........ this could be in the form of a SQL database that I can query using an Access front end (I have very limited SQL skills, but can work with Access relatively easily), or (preferably) as a standalone Access database.
There here may be a supplemental "add-on" to the project involving a second data source that will link to this one -- I will provide details on this, as well as instructions regarding formatting of data fields and other specifications once a consultant has been selected.
